Leadeship Novato Calendar


The connections and friendships some make in Leadership Novato transcend decades. The women and men of LN are civic-minded caring people and will be your allies and partners throughout your endeavors in business, philanthropy and activism.


Each month we take a look at a unique piece of a community's structure. From agriculture to water to power to traffic, all of these (and more) go into a structure of a community. Get behind the scenes and first-hand accounts from experts in their fields related to these topics.


You will have an army of support behind you including +30 years of Novato Chamber Leadership Alumni as resources. From all walks of life, LN Alumni form a close bond.


Working with a group of individuals may seem challenging at first, but as you and your team work to complete a community project for the town, you will bond and learn about different personality types.


The Novato Chamber, along with its partners, the North Marin Water District, Novato Sanitary District, City of Novato, and Novato Fire Protection District, are here to ensure YOUR success. Together we are #ShapingTomorrow

Become an effective leader in Your Community

How does a community run? How do you get your water? Are we meeting sustainability goals? How do you communicate in a group setting? 

With the North Bay's most comprehensive Leadership Program, you will discover all of the at and more!

Your passions come alive.

Not everyone who attends LN is looking to run for civic office. This is a fabulous way to learn about board service and to gain valuable skills in propelling your career forward. As you go over the application to join this coming class, consider where you want to see yourself in a few years
